CNN anchor Brianna Keilar slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Friday for his attempts to “rewrite” history on his support of Donald Trump’s weeks-long fight to overturn the election results.

McCarthy has been railing against Democrats over a review of the race in Iowa’s 2nd congressional district, where the Republican was certified the winner by 6 votes and the Democrat is trying to challenge it. He said Democrats are being “shameless” hypocrites.

On Thursday, CNN’s Manu Raju questioned McCarthy over whether he himself is a hypocrite because of his support of Trump’s own efforts.

When Raju said “Donald Trump tried to overturn the results in Congress and you supported that effort,” McCarthy responded, “Your premise is not true.”

Keilar showed that exchange Friday as she raised the question, “If he’s so fired up about this, where was he when Trump and some Republicans like himself supported overturning the will of the voters in the legitimate election of Joe Biden?”

She called McCarthy out by playing a clip of him saying on November 5th that Trump won the election and citing one report while acknowledging “I don’t have all the facts” of what actually happened.

“What McCarthy can’t escape, no matter how often he tries to run away from it, is that he was one of the leaders of the Big Lie conference,” she said.

And then — accompanied by a chryon reading “THE MCCARTHY CUT” — Keilar drew an analogy to the just-released “Snyder Cut” of Justice League:

“This week, America saw two big rewrites. Zach Snyder’s Justice League, and Kevin McCarthy’s parade of lame excuses, and both of them are fantasies.”
